Helicopter Eela starring Kajol has sequences that people can relate to, with fun bits!

The story displays Helicopter parenting and it covers many bits.

Eela (Kajol) is a mother who is possessive and obsessed with anything his son Vivan (Riddhi Sen) is related to. In the beginning we get to see Eela taking admission in the same college as Vivan’s. We are taken to the flashback sequence to show that she was a dreamer. As a budding singer, Eela of 90s is preparing to sing anything even if they’re jingles for television. While she rides on a bike with Arun, his boyfriend, she decides to get down at the vintage Rhythm House and calls it as her ‘Zindagi’.

In the entire flashback sequence there too many many cameos of Anu Malik, Mahesh Bhatt, Ila Arun, Baba Sehgal and Alisha Chinai. We see how Eela loses her husband and raise Vivan as a single mother. Now back to the present scene, we see Eela and Vivan having some issues in the college and the way the problems get them together is what the story is all about.

Helicopter Eela is based on Anand Gandhi’s Gujarati play Beta, Kaagdo, the script of Helicopter Eela has been reworked by Mitesh Shah. Right from Eela’s ‘dreams do come true’ attitude to being a Helicopter parent and troubling the son, the script has many unconnected bits. It does touch many different chords, the makers compose a not-so-soothing melody. The issues created leading to misunderstanding between the mother and son are small but leads to a huge decision.

Helicopter Eela has Kajol giving a confident and yet eccentric episodes in her performance. Riddhi Sen, a National Award winning actor, is great with his portrayal of a troubled son. His emotions are excellent, it’s the script that makes the story slow down. Tota Roy Chowdhury has a lot of screen space and does a fair job. The rest of the supporting cast give average performance.

Helicopter Eela has given a remarkable debut with Parineeta, back in 2005, Pradeep Sarkar returns with the film. His direction gives a few moments of delight due to the lead cast. The songs by Amit Trivedi include Mumma Ki Parchai that works well but due to the narration it loses its steam. Shilpa Rao’s Chand Lamhe is a good one in the film.

Helicopter Eela is an average film with good performances by Kajol and Riddhi Sen. With a lot of forced melodrama, Kajol gets a good opportunity to showcase her talent!
